Aimaq and Sons Co., Kabul, Afghanistan 

Djamillah is Abbot's only student from Afghanistan. - 
"Gee that was fun. Can we do it again soon? — Everyone 
seems to like my fuzzy skirt.— The bell is awfully loud, now 
that it works. — I didn't think that the test was hard, but 
then I didn't do that last question. — But I really do think 
firedrills are fun." It has all been fun. 


Saint Paul's School, Concord, New Hampshire 
Sue, Arch "Really?" 

W.U.S. Representative 2, New Fidelio 3, Library Commit- 
tee 3, 4. Class Play 3, Talent Show 3, Davis Hall Marshal 
3, Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, Fidelio 4. 

Sue Archer is usually practical and organized — "It's too 
expensive . . . There's no sense in wasting it . . . Why 
shouldn't I wear cotton skirts in November? It's not winter 
yet." But not always, for example, if you've ever noticed the 
stars in her eyes or that secret smile. Sometimes she's quiet 
and says she's shy. "I'm tired . . . It's not my fault . . . 
I'm not essentially a talkative person unless you get me 
going." But how can a Saint Paul's faculty brat be shy 
and retiring? Sue also likes horse radish, is the "Tweed" 
type, is called "Tooze" and declares vehemendy, "This 
year I'm picking up after Ann!" 

I really have no idea why I'm 
on the ground. 

Yesterday I broke a branch. 



15 Ridge Road, Concord, New Hampshire 

Bizzy "Here I come with my machine gun." 

Honor Roll 3, New Fidelio 3, Ski Club 3, Griffin Cheerlead- 
er 3, 4, Cynosure Staff 4, Fidelio 4. 

A Dutch maid, she shares her smiles with everyone, es- 
pecially that special guy from North Carolina. She is an 
accomplished musician and an enthusiastic sportswoman 
who shines in her native New Hampshire mountains. Of 
quiet nature, she weighs all evidence before arriving at 
a verdict. Renowned for her prowess on the knitting needles 
and acclaimed for her feats in Math., she is always happy 
to help and encourage. An avid supporter of the Griffins, 
on Field Days she is most likely found cheering on her 
team. One who enjoys the beauty of song, she contributes 
her talents to Fidelio. An affirmed lover of nature, she has 
seen sunsets over Eastern lakes and Western plains. With 
warmth in her heart she is headed for the higher places 
in fife. 

707 Estates Drive, Sacramento, California 

"Gee - W-h-y?" 

Debating 4, Cynosure Staff 4. 

"Can I come in? I want to ask you w-h-y .... Gee, 
that's tough. In California you don't have to take Achieve- 
ments. Do you think my hair is too short? Do they really 
have that many calories? Are you kidding? Do you mind 
if I use your scales? Gees Louisel Are you really going to 
stay on your diet?" 

Yoga — it's so inspiring!

West 10th Street, Chadron, Nebraska 



Class Play 3, Talent Show 3, Corridor Proctor 3, 4, Bazaar 
Committee Chairman 3, Cynosure Staff 4, Photography 
Club 4, Circle Board 4. 

Her room? Should have seen it after the prom. To keep 
from making her bed, she sleeps on top. "Jo-piles" keep 
the floor clean. Snatches from her conversation — "It's only 
a half inch above the ground when I kneel. Got a picture 
of you We didn't have to know old Avagadro's number 
after all. University of Nebraska won! I'm going to P. A. 
Existentialism. The Greeks, back in . . . You say she drinks 
Instant Expresso? Runs a smuggling ring on P. A. address 
books? Remember the excitement when she announced, 
"My horse had a colt?" Well, that was nothing compared 
to when her zinnias had buds! 


138 Main Street, Andover, Massachusetts 
Margy "Well, I'll be — Heavens." 

Class Play 1, A.C.A. Representative 2, 3, New Fidelio 2, 
Cynosure Staff 2, Varsity Softball 2, Numerals 2, Fidelio 
3, 4, Day Student Proctor 3, Treasurer of Class 3, Bazaar 
Executive Committee 3, Varsity Soccer 3, 4, A Society 3, 
Secretary of A.A.A. 4, Choir 4. 

On a weekend you can usually find her on one of Abbot's 
sports fields or getting ready for a dance of some kind. She's 
a popular girl, for she can always carry on an interesting 
conversation. No mattei how depressed or unhappy you may 
feel, she never fails to find a few words of encouragement. 
She is never sad, because she finds joy in seeing and making 
others happy. 


And for those of you who just tuned in, 
our new ballon queen is ... . 

Starlight, starhright . 



66 Central Street, Andover, Massachusetts 

Sue, Susie B. "Oh, you're kidding." 

Class Flay 1, Day Student Proctor 2, Sub-varsity Lacrosse 

2, Head Chapel Proctor 3, Bazaar Committee Chairman 

3, New Fidelio 3, Sunday School Teacher 3, President of 
the Day Students 4, Fidelio 4. 

Who is this Susie B.? She is a day student ... a most 
hospitable one too! She is Head of Day Students, and that 
means that she is responsible, alert and reliable and kept 
very busy. Susie B.'s spare time is spent in her studio 
creating, for she has oodles of artistic talent, and she spends 
the rest of that time putting in and taking out her contacts, 
eating Fritos, hamburgers on English muffins and tuna fish, 
and being humorous; she has a divine sense of humor. She 
insists she is not athletic in spite of her collection of varsity 
lacrosse and hockey certificates and the numerals on her 
blazer. Cute, fun, well organized, thoughtful and spirited 
are all good adjectives to describe Susie, but they are still 
not good enough. 


1823 Mountain Road, West Suffield, Connecticut 
Judy "I'm so excited!" 

Corridor Proctor 2, Class Play 3, New Fidelio 3, Fidelio 4. 

Idol — Dr. Kildare. He has intense blue eyes. He is soooo 

Always found — Anticipating vacations, weekends and Sat- 
urday leaves and those P.A. blind dates — "Oh, that 
Senior-Mid prom." Peeping through keyholes. 

Her Bible — Airline Guide. She's a walking-talking ency- 
clopedia of flights, airlines, numbers, etc., etc. 

Achievements — The distinguished writer of Ten Minutes 
on Third Floor Ahhy. The boundless capacity for doing 
nothing. She does the least in the most amount of time. 
"I found all the Ninas." Those Tuesday afternoon Math, 
conferences ... A million stories from the same three 
plots, but always without an end. A typical hospital 
room, never a speck of dust out of place, and oh that 
smell of Seabreeze! 

Heh — heh — heh 

Airplanes are my favorite people. 



117 Main Street, Farmington, Connecticut 

Betsy "Why? - Crum." 

Class Song Leader 2, 3, New Fidelio 2, A Cappella Group

Fidelio 3, 4, Singing Director of the Talent Show 3, Bazaar 
Committee Chairman 3, Treasurer of A.C.A. 4, Choir 4,

vivacious; also pertaining indirectly to chocolate] 1. rosy 
cheeks. 2. Harvard weekends. 3. spidery chapel talks. 
Colloq. — adj. 1. prone to fits of giggles, blushes and 
occasional screams. 2. gay, vivacious and interested in 
other people — esp. "people" people such as those who 
work at Miles General - my - Hospital, or those who 
work at the Audubon Camp of Maine, v.t. 1. to sing — 
esp. choir and Fidelio songs. 2. to chase insects or scan 
trees for birds. 3. parler Francais. 


1320 Rahway Road, Plainfield, New Jersey 
Joanie, Carts "Nuts! Good Grief I' 

Honor^ Roll 3, 4, Fidelio 3, 4, Talent Show 3, 
eights" 3, 4, Choir 4, Treasurer of A.A.A. 4. 



Name — Carter, Joanie 

Size — tiny 

Hair — blonde 

Eyes — very blue 

Distinguishing Characteristics — The cheeriest "Hi" in the 
school . . . the insatiable appetite for apples . . . the 
gigantic Princeton banner . . . the tiger shortie pajamas 
. . . the continual supply of cookies: "My mommy sent 
me more food" . . . the talent for inventing words: "I've 
got a quest," — "Okays" — "Have a cooks." 

Note — Joanie can be singled out in any group as the one 
with the understanding of the meaning of acheivement 
and of excellence. Her curiosity is boundless; her energy 
in pressing the high standards she sets for herself is 

Caution — Her cheer and exuberance are infectious as is 
her intense dedication to whatever she is doing. — Proceed 
with care.

Campus Road, Clinton, New York 

Lissa, Lis 

"Be a chum." 


Class Play 2, 3, A Cappella Group 2, New Fidelio 2, 
Modern Dance Group 2, 3, Varsity Soccer 2, 3, Fidelio 3. 

She entered fall '62. "Oh great, a whole extra closet 
for leotards. At least we're not living at the bottom of 
a fish tank this year. Now listen — this room is going to 
look individual. Now, what I see is green velvet canopies 

ooh how about a big cobweb over the ceiling? 

Wallpaper? It'll only take six dozen blotters." Tripping in 
from ballet class she says, "There was this divine boy on 
the subway. He was reading his copy of Mad, and I was 
reading mine." About school — "Do you really think 
Leonard Bernstein would come to the Abbot prom?" Being 
chums is fun. 

Argilla Road, Ipswich, Massachusetts 

"Chortle, Chortle." 

Corridor Proctor 1, 4, Class Play 1, 2, A.C.A. Representative 
2, Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, Library Committee 4. 

There is a warmth in Sue's quietness, a quickness in her 
humor, and a simplicity in her words. To share her laughter 
is to join with her in real understanding, to speak with her 
is to be all at once yourself. Hers is the rare gift of friend- 
ship, of knowing you in your own truths and sharing with 
you the honesty of her thought of doubt and the suddenness 
of her humor. And always there is fun in her — "Come for 
a non-caloric pickle and flatbread party — I'm sending for 
the four-foot giant in this ad — I've always wanted a horn 
that sounds like a bus — I'm so excited about everything!" 
To know Sue is to have a fuller measure of your own joys. 

Oh to he dancing at Lincoln Center 
with Leonard Bernstein. 

I'm the one in the sneakers. 



42 Atlantic Avenue, Cohasset, Massachusetts 
Mimi, Mimer "You know what I mean?" 

Debating 2, 4, Modern Dance Group 2, A.C.A. Representa- 
tive 2, Class Play 3, Secretary of Class 3, Corridor Proctor 
3, Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, President of A.C.A. 4, 
Numerals 4. 

"Hey you guys, it's awfully hot in here. Why doesn't 
someone open a window?" 

"Mimer, you're the closest. Why don't you?" 

"Golly, I'm writing a letter." 

"On a painting?" 

"Yeah. Don't you think it's more interesting that way?" 

"I know. It's a good way to get rid of another one of 
your water-color and ink paintings of a lighthouse and 
rocks, too." 

"Well, you know." 

"Hey, did you go downtown today, Mimi?" 

"No. I wish I had, though. Wouldn't you love some pop- 
corn right now? Or some fruit salad with cottage cheese? 
Or even an apple?" 

"Well, we don't have anything, so you'd better stop 

"Yeah, I guess you're right. I'll never finish this letter, 
though. I feel so uninspired! I think I'll go to bed — I can't 
wait to dream on my pillow!" 


Zacatlan #8, Col. La Paz, Puebla, Puebla, Mexico 

Rosita, Rosie "Ay!" 

Class Play 1, Modern Dance Group 1. 

Rosita is always good company for listening to records 
and dancing to the music of the "Cha-cha-cha," and also for 
those midnight chats about vacations and HOME! — not 
to forget those little "food-parties." She sparkles with her 
feminine ways and manners, and she is always prompt in 
answering her correspondence. Rosita often finds herself 
thinking "angelical" thoughts — Latin boys with green 
eyes and dark hair. She can usually be heard saying: "Ay, 
Maria, chula! — Are you through with that magazine? — 
In Mexico we ... " And one of her favorite occupations 
is cutting out pictures from magazines while munching on 

Nothing like a good smile to keep up 
your energy! 


/ don't mind my school — it's just 
the work. 


Ponus Street, New Canaan, Connecticut 
Lorn "Tough." 

Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, Talent Show 3, Davis Hall 
Marshal 3, Current Events Club 3, Griffin Captain 4, Var- 
sity Tennis 4, Library Committee 4. 

You might call her the happy wanderer — from tennis 
courts to ski slopes to lacrosse field, "all roached out" in 
the country house where Jay turns to her, "you think I'm 
a farmer huh; I'm a lover." Then there was Sakonnet, New- 
port, Bluehill, Provincetown — fife at Abbot was almost 
as exciting — Middlebury, Colgate, Trinity or Dartmouth. 
She's not necessarily a stickler for the rules but a stickler 
for Griffin victories. "Smile and the world smiles with you, 
cry and you cry alone." Paint brush in hand, she walks on 

Hidden Field, Andover, Massachusetts 
Debby, Deb 

Class Play 1, 2, 3, Honor Roll 2, 3, Varsity Lacrosse 3, 
Courant Board 3, 4. 

Debby finished washing up the milk cans. Then she 
swept out the bam and washroom. She stood for a minute 
with her hands in her pockets on the edge of the platform. 
The last of the cows were disappearing over the hill. "The 
farmer" stepped out beside her and thanked her for help- 
ing. Debby shrugged her shoulders and laughed, embar- 
rassed at being thanked. He headed for his truck, and she 
dropped to the ground and took off after the cows. Out in 
the pasture Debby propped herself against a big, black and 
white shoulder. She took out the letter she had received the 
previous day and with a stubby pencil began sketching on 
the envelope. 

Ha, ha! I ate the porridge! 


Nice cow. 


Wilderness Road, Tryon, North Carolina 
Kasey, Flako "Where's the food? — Y'all hush up!" 

Honor Roll 2, 3, 4, Varsity Basketball 2, 3, New Fidelio 2, 
Class Play 3, Fidelio 3, 4, Varsity Lacrosse 3, Varsity Soc- 
cer 3, 4, Numerals 3. 

"Umph! It's morning!" Kasey collapses out of bed and 
crawls over to me. "You still asleep?" she asks with one 
eye half open. "Umph! That's amazing!" The breakfast 
bell having rung five minutes ago, we amble down to the 
meal gracefully tripping over one another. "Oh well," Kasey 
mutters, "I always was a spaz. I think that's why Ricky 
likes me so much — I'm always falling at his feet!" 


Brooks School, North Andover, Massachusetts 

New Fidelio 2, Fidelio 3, 4, Choir 3, 4, Honor Roll 3, 4, 
Courant Board 3, Editor-in-Chief of Courant 4, Choir Ac- 
companist 4. 

There sits in a field of undulating winter wheat a 
Hamadryad. Her fingers, chilled, trill forth on a recorder 
a high melody of a distant Scots fantasy, until the ear at 
last abandons the melody and chases the whistling wind. 
Up jumps the Hamadryad and is off on the wind, a breath 
of genius. First, into the philosophic pondering with eye- 
brows raised in question until the words, "One can suppose 
..." And next, into a dark gloom-filled room where 
only yellowed ivory keys and dust are, until her fingers 
begin and Bach breaks forth then Chopin, glimmering, and 
the room is light. We are foolish enough to stumble into 
her practicing room and apologize, "Have we interrupted?" 
"Of course not, silly!" our Hamadryad says and smiles as 
always she does, for there is in our Hamadryad a joy in 
living intrinsically interwoven with her spirit as are her 
locks ofttimes with the waving wheat.

Powder Point Avenue, Duxbury, Massachusetts 

Debating 2, W.U.S. Representative 2, Class Play 2, 3, Honor 
Roll 2, 3, "Intoxic - eights" 3, 4, New Fidelio 3, Bazaar 
Committee Chairman 3, Fidelio 4, Circle Board 4. 

A tall girl with a quiet, infinitely calm expression on 
her face walks out of the library. A swift smile to a friend, 
a group of hats on her room's walls, an enthusiastic dental 
floss fan, a high "Intoxic — eight," an accomplished ac- 
cordionist, an early morning departure to Hotchkiss, ex- 
tended vacations, sailing, sailing, sailing and more sailing 
are all typical of Ree. A steady, industrious, and devoted 
friend if Ree. 

Post Office Box 2863, Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa 

W.U.S. Representative 2, Library Committee 3, Photog- 
raphy Club 4. 

"But I want to be a doctor!" a capital undiscovered ac- 
tress, the delight of every African Exchange Student on 
the East Coast, hence sovereignty over third floor telephone. 
She is a lover of children and a gende poetess, the delight 
of the Courant, but resolute upon occasion. "Everyone has 
color!" She speaks French and German by means of Kikuyu 
phonetics. She would sleep indefinitely were it not for a 
keen understanding of the intricacies of the alarm clock. 
"Will you have tea?" "I will bring water." "Can I wear 
these colors together?" She appears upon special occasions, 
a beautiful ambassadress wearing a long hand-sewn 
"muthuru." "When you come to Kenya, I will show you." 

Arf! Arf! 


Jambo from the wandering scholar. 


Shawnee Hills, Wheeling, West Virginia 

Glease "Nobody loves me." 

Varsity Tennis 2, 3, 4, Current Events Club 3, Talent 
Show 3, Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, New Fidelio 3, 
Debating 3, Fidelio 4, Head of Senior Parlor Committee 4. 

Up with the bell, "Rabbot Abbid, Rabbit Abbit, Abbot 
Rabbot, oh heck!" Breakfast — those little packages of raisin 
bran. Neatness — "Don't sit on the bed." "Listen you guys, 
have you heard this joke?" "Hey, slow down you Yankees." 
Diet — she's on one day and off the next. "I'm just like 
Charlie Brown, nobody loves me." "I had my horns re- 
moved." "Tee-hee" "He's a weenie." Smoking hour — 
"C'mon Humstone, I'll teach you how to smoke." "I can't 
stand playing tennis with girls!!" "Pass the prunes please." 
Constantly suffering from laughing spells. "We are not 
pigs." Barking at night. Mes exercices "Yeh Weez, I have 
them on." Cupid arrows for Exeter. "May we have a mo- 
ment of silent prayer." 

292 Blossom Street, Fitchburg, Massachusetts 

"I just don't understand." 

President of Class 2, Modern Dance Group 2, 3, Debating 
2, Class Play 2, 3, Honor Roll 3, Griffin Cheerleader 3, 4. 

"But I just don't understand. Why can't our room be 
done in purple?" she said as she carefully pasted a giant 
picture of J.F.K. on the wall next to Brubeck's. "You know, 
someday all you'll have to do is push a button, and any- 
thing will happen. I think everything is based on science," 
she continued as she sat in the middle of the floor cutting 
up pictures for her art course. About boys? "All I want is 
a sensitive, intelligent, creative, gorgeous hunk," she sighed 
as she threw the P.A. address book under the bed. And 
then she said, "That's my cat. She's fat." and walked out 
into the world. 

I'm not a sore loser — I'm sick. 

Why doesn't the crocodile smile? 


60 High Plain Road, Andover, Massachusetts 

"I'll be over at the stable." 

Honor Roll 1, 2, 3, 4, Day Student Proctor 1, 4, Class Play 
1, 2, Numerals 3, Current Events Club 3. 

There she is every morning standing on the chapel steps, 
while everyone else goes in, and philosophizing about the 
lastest on boys, horses, school, dances, horses and the next 
vacation to a small, loyal bunch who brave the cold, rain or 
snow to listen. It's a mystery to them how she gets so much 
done in and out of school. During the week she goes from 
teaching Sunday School to riding in horse shows, to plan- 
ning a party or going to one. Still she manages to arrive 
bright and cheery every morning to stand on the steps and 
talk about it all. 


1803 Pecan Street, Texarkana, Arkansas 
Cindy 'Tall ..." 

Debating 3, Library Committee 3, Photography Club 4, 
Cynosure Staff 4, Co-chairman of Library Committee 4, 
Circle Board 4. 

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Lucinda 
who wanted to go to magic places like Mexico, Vander- 
built, Cornell and the Mardi Gras. Her magic words were 
Ned, Murf or Harry. But with magic words she needed a 
magic diet. Every three weeks she asked, "Does she make 
you eat?" And more often she said, "Y'all going downtown? 
Get me six Cadbury bars and three packages of Double- 
mint gum." To keep in shape for her magic journeys she 
wished "we could take walks instead," or "didn't see why 
we couldn't have a golf team." But with folk music, violets 
and lilies-of-the-valley in paper cups and wishes on stars, 
Lucinda lived happily ever after. 

Don't you dare step on my foot. 

Did you say fore? 



19 Pilot Park Lane, Riverside, Connecticut 

Annabelle "What a day!" 

Vice President of Class 1, Social Committee 1, Class Play

The cutting of the scissors echos crisply as Ann hums 
(in an intoxicating voice) "I Could Have Danced All 
Night," followed by a chorus of "Its A Great, Big Wonder- 
ful World. . . " 

Ahh, here's a good picture. I just love those tinted stock- 
ings ads. And this caption is perfect in Sue's birthday 
card .... 

Whoops! don't want to be late for the Gargoyle-Griffin 
soccer game. C'mon Gargs! gotta change quickly, must re- 
member to order the flowers for Mrs. B., and bring along 
some lemon drops for energy in the game. Now, just my

10600 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas 

Honor Roll 2, 4. 

On the floor of the room bestrewn with books, papers, 
and bubble gum wrappers a pink bathrobe and a very puffy 
hairdo sat, working furiously. Abruptly she slammed the 
book and shoved it aside. "What a stupid assignment!" She 
reached for her history text. "I went to the library three 
times this afternoon, and there wasn't one reference book 

left on the shelf. "AAAH! What? The biology word 

list? All right. When I'm through." She walked to her 
bureau and began setting her hair. "Oh, I've gained so 
much weight. Look at that! Abbot makes me ugly." When 
the nine o'clock bell rang the pink bathrobe shuffled out 
of the room. "I'm so tired. I can't stay up until eleven. 
It's ridiculous." 

Hi there! 


Miss Stevenson, I always take this route 
to the batliroom. 


Phillips Street, Andover, Massachusetts 


Class Play 1, 2 3, New Fidelio 3, Fidelio 4, Courant 
Board 3, 4. 

With her news-reading in chapel, her early morning 
gaiety, and her comments in classes she makes us happy. 
Her beautiful art work and hilarious stories distinguish her 
from any sort of person. She is very special, and no one 
is more loved.

Kathy "Now look!" 

Honor Roll 3, Cynosure Staff 4. 

Kathy is extremely industrious. — "I've spent a whole 
hour on my homework. It's time to go to bed." She's very 
concerned about her appearance — "If you have dessert, 
I'll have dessert. — I have to air my packing box because 
mothballed facecloths dry out my face. — It's lucky I can 
see without my glasses on. — It's sun - bleached. —No 
one can use the scales today; they're recuperating. — Could 
I really get into the movies for under twelve?" She's su- 
spicious. — "Who took my pillow?" And she can get mad 
at her roommate. — "If this place isn't picked up by the 
time I get back . . . !" 

You say there's a message for me 
from Telstar?

W.U.S. Representative 3, Class Play 3, Current Events 
Club 3, Varsity Hockey 2, 3, 4, Varsity Lacrosse 3, New 
Fidelio 3, Gargoyle Captain 4, Fidelio 4. 

Life is excitement, enthusiasm and carefree laughter, an 
exuberant personality that wants to "be free to live and 
love as it chooses." From moonlight sails to warm southern 
telephone calls to Beta weekends, Brooks scarves, Yale 
rings, Colgate mugs and Harvard garters is her idea of how 
to live life to its fullest. To play a guitar, to walk barefoot 
with long brown hair blowing in the breeze, to live by 
immediate emotions and, someday, to hop a train for the 
deep south is to live by the thought "she lives litde who 
lives by rule." 

Candid Camera? You're kidding me! 

Love me, love my teddy bear.

Carrie, her quick smile and continual bounce have left 
their mark in many places. The Athletic Association and 
varsity teams will never forget her co-ordination and lead- 
ership. These activities spilled over into the summer when 
she taught tennis with the Harvard pros. Life at Abbot 
consists of many callers and constant phone calls from 
dutiful admirers, while vacations often consist of four 
dates in three days. As "The Scarlet Pimpernel" would say, 
"The best things come in small packages."

Feminine, naive, disorganized — that's Humper. She's 
easy going and good natured. She never writes HABVABD 
without putting stars around it. She studies perched on the 
side of her bed. 
DUBING THE DAY: "111 never make it to breakfast. -

— They said my clods were beyond repair. — You're neat

of the blast!" 

AND AT NIGHT: "Were we barking? - Hey you^ guys

Mare, J asp "I love him! — Really suave." 

New Fidelio 3, Talent Show 3, Fidelio 4, Senior Parlor 
Committee 4, Social Committee 4. 

She will always be remembered returning from vacations 
with stars in her eyes and a smile stretching from ear to 
ear as she stands thunderstruck in the doorway and cries 
passionately, "I luff him!" She will also be remembered 
saying: "I've got my Syracuse accent back. — Should I pack 
my banner? — I set my hair every night. — Pat's my idol! 
— Look at my circles! — I'm going to pin my straps together 
with frat pins. — Help! I'm bleeding blue blood! — Wall 
to wall carpeting, chandeliers, French doors opening out 
onto a balcony. — That's the most horribly depressed letter 
I've ever written. — I'm gonna die." Things to remember 
her by: Paper clip chain; boys, boys, boys; neat, neat, neat; 
the towers; frustration pictures; a curiosity killer; slapping 
slippers; whiney voice; midnight cokes; forever alienated 
by her Syracuse friends; cute smile; a love of life.

Committee 4. 

You may hear a voice, beautiful and pleasant, softly 
singing snatches from "West Side Story" or a chorus of 
"Ebb Tide." Even if you didn't know Mary, some things 
about her would be evident from a casual observation. She 
smiles easily and laughs often, a sign of her inner happiness. 
She listens intently to the girl beside her, a sign of her 
understanding nature. It would require a more detailed 
study to discover her propensity for writing reminders to 
herself, especially at two in the morning — "Set breakfast." 
She is a storehouse of obscure and little-known facts — 
"Did you know that F.D.R. had a dog named Fallah?" She 
is a good friend.

"I'm tired of chasing around after you every night! Get

" 'Night Mrs. Ellis." 

Weezie is a vivacious blonde with a terrific sense of 
humor. She's a natural athlete and on all varsities. She's 
been known to keep a History class in hysterics. She's 
funny, as heck, especially when laughing. She can always 
pull a smile out of a bad mood. Weezie's insatiable 
curiosity opens many doors, (ahem . . . locked doors?) She 
is into everything and out of nothing.

Class Play 1, 2, W.U.S. Representative 2, Numerals 3, 
Hockey Varsity 3, Talent Show 3, Debating 3, 4, Cynosure 
Staff 3, Circle Board 4. 

C.C. is someone who will make you happy and relaxed 
the minute you meet her. As you get to know her better 
you will find that this optimism is not just easy-going, 
there is an understanding of people behind it. She gets 
inspiration from her Astronomy Club (star gazing), from 
the specimens of Art found around our campus and that 
up the hill. One special inspiration is P.K., who is no 
longer up the hill but who has gone on to bigger things. 
C. C. will go on to bigger things, too, her Biology notes 
and knitting bag tucked under her arm, with a cheerful 
twinkle in her deep brown eyes, and a mind full of happy 
thoughts of the big wide world.

Margie "Guess what happened!?" 

Class Play 1, 2, Fencing Prize 2, Talent Show 3, Cynosure 
Staff 3, 4, Debating 3, 4. 

She sparkles in good company. When she is gay, she 
is hopelessly jolly; when she is touched by a sad scene, 
she soaks up three or more handkerchiefs. Her sincerity 
is baffling. What she hates most is dishonesty. She has a 
determination to get at the roots of something she doesn't 
understand. She gets great satisfaction out of arranging 
things, and she goes at it with the earnestness of a dog 
trying to find a good place for his bone.

Representative 4, Varsity Soccer 4. 

Cherry has brought a lot of special enthusiam with her 
to Abbot to pass modestly on to us. She is a true friend; 
a girl who understands people's needs. She is sensitive to 
the world around, quick to appreciate others, quick to see 
the truth of the situation, quick to make the most of it, 
slow to criticize, slow to lose her head. There's a lilt in 
her stride and a twinkle in her brown eyes, a readiness 
to discuss anything anywhere — even over a guitar. Wheth- 
er she's in Math, Physics, soccer, lacrosse or Fidelio, she 
makes others glad they're there too. In her four years she's 
had little to complain about — except the luck of the Grif- 
fins. If every Garg were as ardent a supporter, the Griffins 
wouldn't have a prayer.

boy is good enough." 

Ann — the organized type — "But Peggy, we're not late 
— Has anyone seen a black fountain pen?" 

Ann — her favorite course is art — "Who's watching the

painting? — But I like moody colors!" 

Ann — the intellectual — "Guess what, I've got a Chemis-

Clomp, clomp, clomp — here comes Morley back from 
the bathroom in her usual attire, lacy nightgown and 
clods. "Don't faint you guys, but I'm going to set my hair 
tonight!" Outfitted with curlers and pink socks (to guard 
against the cold), Poops leaps into bed. "Aaaaah, clean 
sheets." Poops thrashes in bed. Silence. " 'Night, Poops!" 

Morley, commonly called "Poops," is unique in many 
ways: her phobia against contacts, her fluency in the 
French ^language ("Nighty-night! Oops! I mean Bone New- 
Wheat!"), her frequent "I don't get it!", her individualistic 
walk and her characteristic "Tee Hee." We all love Poops! 


575 Ridge Road, Hamden, Connecticut 

Paishy "I just can't get organized!" 

Sitting upon the floor her legs sprawled amidst a clutter 
of books, papers, clothes, boxes, and musical and athletic 
paraphernalia, this New England maid exclaims, "I'm so dis- 
organized!" How true! And her roommates are not surprised 
that she "does not know what she has been doing with her- 
self all day." Yet they are always taken aback by the 
slyness and brilliance of her innocent-sounding hints — 
"Gee, I'm hungry! — Who's making that crunching sound? 
— Can I have some?" But then what can one expect from 
a person who eats lobster for breakfast, who sleeps with 
her eyes open and who loses the same pen every day? 

Should have seen his father!

Mole spends much time thinking about stupid people, 
New York and vacations. Quite light on her feet, she spends 
the rest of her time sneaking into room 136. She makes a 
good Holly-go-Lightly in dancing leotards and sunglasses. 
She's also one of the Instant Expresso fans on the second 
floor. "Where's the queen?" "Gee poopsie, are you sure 
you don't mind?" She writes and speaks el Espanol like an 
Argentinian. She keeps a large tree in her room for hats 
and anything she can't get into her closet. "No, I don't do 
anything to my hair."

she is the most charming "Cliffie." 

"Lord, will you look at that blond streak! — Briggs, if

Sweet, green-eyed Maria — always dreaming about those

the darling Dominican, famous for her calm ways and her 
Spanish accent. One can always find her — she is either 
writing letters or singing "Amor Mio" in the shower. One 
can always hear her rattling away en Espanol about, oh, 
things. Like: the merengue, the beach, moonlight serenades, 
by-gone conversations, cats. Maria, the perfect lady, who 
always has a comforting and cheerful word for everybody. 
Yes, she's nice, and she has added a Latin touch to Abbot.

Re: Candidates 

We the class of 1963 wish our Senior president to have 
certain qualifications. She must have bright blue eyes and 
dark curly hair, a quick smile and a strong sense of re- 
sponsibility and leadership. North Carolina, diets, Radcliffe 
and drama (pretty much in that order) should dominate 
her thoughts. She must be willing to listen to other people's 
problems and have a sense of humor that makes the best of 
any situation ("I like to have fun, that's all!") She must 
enjoy the arts, particularly theater, and must have positive 

Resolved: That Meg Power is the only candidate who 
reaches these qualifications.

A broad smile, beautiful dark eyes, flappy flats and

writer, ski snow bunny, Aunt Jemima, fresh-air fiend 
and always an understanding listener. We know Jane by 
"It must be somewhere in this bureau drawer!" — "the mid- 
night ride of Paul Revere" — "Do you understand?, No, I 
don't think you do." — "I'm in such a good mood!" and

Found in the hotel suite with wall-to-wall carpeting, 
chandelier, and balcony, Linda may be arranging blind 
dates, clutching her monkey, or burrowing through the ac- 
cumulated mail, books and clothes on her bed to go to 
sleep. But no matter what else she's doing, she'll be talking. 
Every Friday afternoon, with a chuckle "Good-bye, clods!" 
she heaves her sturdies to the furthest corner of her closet. 
She wheedles information with "Come on . . .. tell us!" 
Afraid of the dark, she cultivates her circles late into the 
night. Never a dull moment, her motto is: "Don't just sit 
there - WORRY!" In front of the mirror she's nutty, "Am 
I getting flat!" or suggests, "See? My bangs are kind of 
straight!" Perhaps she'll clench her teeth and say "Oooooh, 
makes me so-o-o mad! If I don't get a letter 111 just

Abbot. "As I was climbing up a tree . . . ." Oh dear, 
Barb's been composing again. "Guess what, I got twenty- 
eight letters from Dave today. Poor Mike! Poor Kit!" She 
disgustedly kicked her script, then timidly asked, "Kasey, 
sweet angel, is that a little cupcake I spy?" She clenched 
her fists; "Flack, if you don't give me that cupcake, 111 
smash your face in!" She switched the radio from Elvis to 
Beethoven, then suddenly cocked a quizzical ear, "Oh, 
great! Hide the radio; the Procter's coming!" 

Monkey see, monkey do.

Corridor Proctor 2, 3, Class Play 3, W.U.S. Representative 3, 

Cynosure Stan 3, Editor-in-chief of Cynosure 4, Library 
Committee 4, Sunday School Teacher 4. 

With a cheery "Hi" she rounds the mailroom corner, 
a stack of freshly printed Cynosures in hand. Who is this 
dark-eyed girl who spouts Chinese and adores art, crunches 
animal crackers, stimulates conversations and reads Time 
magazine, and who is always heard saying, "I've just got 
to get organized! — You have written that article, haven't 
you? — Is it there — is my contact in?" Who is this girl who 
is deeply interested in the world around her and who loves 
the sunrise and the pounding waves of Waterford? We 
know by the smile and the blazing blue Hotchkiss jacket 
that she's Anita.

Eileen "Hey, people, please be quiet!" 

A.C.A. Representative 3, Davis Hall Marshal 3, Cynosure 
Staff 3, 4, Corridor Proctor 4. 

She cheers all around her, she radiates a quiet con- 
fidence, she works hard, she plays hard. A firm supporter 
of the good, she searches for the better. Abbot is nice, but 
only 300 miles from home. With the world her prison she 
must comprehend its every nook and cranny. From Greece 
to California, from Latin to Spanish, she explores its cul- 
tures. Her curiosity is not limited by fear of the flock; 
she thinks as an individual; she acts according to a well- 
trained conscience. Uniquely, she is, at the same time, an 
understanding listener, a loyal friend. 

At Abbot nearly everyone reads the 

So who's new this week? 


Sutton Hill Road, North Andover, Massachusetts 

Class Play 1, 2, W.U.S. Representative 1, Varsity Tennis 2,

Treasurer of Day Students 4, Circle Board 4. 

A quick natural wit is mighty rare, but when it comes 
to Seeche, there is none better. That is Miss Seeche to you. 
With a flair for the unusual she has a knack for coming 
out ahead of any situation. Sharon is the actress at both 
ends of the hill and has the best "ad-lib" on campus. She 
is an up-and-coming artist — poetess and painter. She has 
made the best of her lot as a day student by devoting 
herself to becoming a permanent fixture in the life of every 
boarder. We all thank her for that — even Pooh! And for 
her next trick — who knows?

Cindy "Hmmm ... I don't believe it." 

Talent Show 3, Current Events Club 3, Treasurer of 
Class 4, Cynosure Staff 4. 

Found on and around third floor front, the Cinda 
Sorensena is die only one of her kind here at Abbot. Tins 
species shows no sign of life until 7:00 A.M. Her day is 
ordinary because this girl likes night life. Starting at 
10:15 A.M. one hears the enraged voice of her roommate, 
"Sorenson, have you finished fratching around yet?" "Don't 
get me flustered. I only have five more curlers to go. Hey, 
may I borrow a piece of bubble gum?" She then proceeds 
to practice on her bargain pool table. Finally at 11:00 P.M. 
she settles down to catawalling folk songs with her eternal

To be the well-dressed woman of the world is the aspira- 
tion of every girl. The essence of beauty — provocative eyes, 
shining hair, many clothes and happy smiles contribute to 
her Liz Taylor appearance and savoir-faire. To be a leader 
is to have personal worthiness, constructive responsibility 
and sincere enthusiasm. To understand people is to know 
boys — from Exeter to Florida to Paris a well-traveled girl 
is able to fit easily into any foreign situation and add to 
it a personal touch of friendship.

Laurie "Jahwol." 

Sunday School Teacher 2, Cynosure Staff 2, 3, Library 
Committee 3, Managing Editor of Cynosure 4. 

"Was that the bell to get up?" 
"No, Laurie. It was the bell for breakfast." 
And so another day begins for Laurie — a little earlier, 
perhaps, than it should have. She will put on her favorite 
Thrift Shop skirt with one of her brother's menshirts, and 
after two cups of black coffee for breakfast, she'll face 
classes. During the afternoon, she'll be found in the rec 
room, dressed in her blue-jeans and sweatshirt, listening to 
Josh White. She'll end the day as late as she began it. 

"Please, Miss Stevenson, it won't take me more than 
ten minutes to shower, wash and set my hair." She laughs 
at this absurd statement. She ends her day with that 
wonderful notorious laugh. 

They dropped the bomb.

Nanny "But Em, this is only my 

third shower today." 

Honor Roll 2, 3, 4. 

Out of the room, down the hall, and into the shower, 
"Why Em, this is only my second shower today!" Fidelio's 
most talented reject. The big question: "Was I singing or 
talking then?" . . . "No, I wasn't talking, I was sing- 
ing!" "My, did I sleepwalk again last night?" Notice the 
natural greenish-mauve tinge of the eyelids and the symme- 
trical folds under the eyes. Max Factor's models couldn't 
create this effect! "Egads 103! Must diet. I'm getting so 
fat!" Picturesque Nan, leaves for sports bundled up in 
four sweaters, sweatshirt, longs, scarf, gloves, and with 
her classical comment of, "If I were crippled they still 
would make me take sports," saunters out the door. "Miss 
Tucker, I should like to drop — ." "Thank you. See you 
next semester." Exit stage right.

Jackie, Suts "That's gross." 

Class Play 3, Varsity Tennis 3, 4, New Fidelio 3, Business 
Manager of Cynosure 4, Fidelio 4, Gargoyle Cheerleader 4. 

Jackie is most often found with a comb standing in front 
of a mirror and is alway hungry — has an insatiable ap- 
petite for gum. The subject she worries most about is boys 
— that Yale weekend at Harvard! Her best sport is talking 
on the telephone for hours, but she was an active participant 
in the field hockey games on third floor Abby after lights, 
and she is the miniature pool table champion. There's 
always the mad dash for the Sunday smoking hour — "I 
need a cigarette!" She is that notorious "Hartford girl" 
and is the president of the I.B.T.C. She always wants more 
clothes but needs five trunks to get home for vacation. "I 
can't find the Ninas!" Popcorn parties after lights. The 
voice that carries for miles — "Babes!"

I. Appearance. 

A. Hair— brown, medium length, always being brushed. 

B. Eyes— gray blue, usually closed from lack of sleep. 

C. Neat and Clean— at least one bath shower per day, 
"expensive" figure. 

II. Habits and Characteristics. 

A. Amherst Theta parties, Exeter weekends, and Yale 

B. Bubble gum chewer, grape juice worshipper, prune 

C. Backward-slanted bouncy walk. 

D. "Humstone, you're so queer." 

E. "Resissless our team thweepth onward." 
III. Personality. 

A. Cheerful. 

B. Innocent looks can be deceiving. 

C. "This really interests me."

Jackie "Funniest thing . . . ." 

Class Play 3, Talent Show 3, Library Committee 3, Photog- 
raphy Club 4, Griffin Cheerleader 4. 

"Funniest thing," said Jackie, munching on corn muffins, 
"I think my hair is a different color today. Study? I'm 
taking a medical leave this weekend." 

/ackie's full of wisdom, unproved theories, and advice — 
you ever get in an embarrassing situation, just laugh." 
You could ask Jackie what her attraction for Austin Healeys 
is caused by, or why she knits such large sweaters, but 
you know the reason is at least six feet tall. Perhaps most 
often you might hear Jackie question, "What day are we 
today?" or "What shall I sign it?" Personality plus — that's 
van Aubel, with a small v, please.

Li'l Vard "Poor Baby— Ba-a-arb! Kasey!" 

Class Play 1, Modern Dance Group 1, 2, 3, Talent Show 3, 
Fidelio 4, Gargoyle Cheerleader 4, Social Committee 4. 

"Barb, Kasey! Where are you?" Clomp, clomp, clomp. 
Vard plods down the corridor to our room. "I got a call 
from Al last night. It was rather embarrassing because 
Tom answered the phone; Dick was in the living room; 
Stacy was at the door; and Chief y was in the playroom. 
Greenleaf didn't mind, though; he was too busy mixing 
my drink." With a fist full of cookies she continues her dis- 
course as she dodges the A.C.A. treasurer. "Oh dem poor

Nat "d'ya — eh." 

Corridor Proctor 2, 3, New Fidelio 2, Varsity Tennis 2, 3, 4, 
Ski Club 3, 4, Fidelio 3, 4, Bazaar Committee Chairman 3, 
Vice President of A.A.A. 4, "Intoxic-eights" 4, Choir 4. 

One often finds a subtle twinkle in those large, shining 
dark eyes which contrast beautifully with her naturally 
golden streaked hair. Attractive and admirable, she pos- 
sesses a mature attitude and tactful reserve; she's sensible. 
Nat's talented musically and is also known for her beauti- 
ful sweaters, skirts, blouses — you name it; she makes it. — 
"Nat, could you help me with my knitting?" If you ever 
want to feel uncoordinated, watch her at athletic activities 
(especially tennis, skiing, and lacrosse). She's bright green 
with Gargoyle blood. Familiar are her white bucks instead 
of saddle shoes, those Groton and Noble and Greenough 
scarves, coke and coffee. One can sometimes hear her say, 
"Should I have plastic surgery on my nose?" She's "Sleepy" 
and a "Concordian," has a rewardingly pleasant smile, 
laugh, and never loses control of a situation. All of these 
are typically Nat. 

And to all my fans .

"Hey you guys, do you know where my pencil case is? 
It was right here." (opening and slamming of doors, stomp- 
ing of feet to next room, throwing of books). "Where is it? 
Will you guys look?" (several grunts, great shuffle of 

papers). "Where is that pencil case?" "Well, 

Helen, where did you last see it?" "Obviously on my desk." 
"Helen, it's under your arm!" "Yeah, so it is —ha, ha." 
(several chuckles and giggles). 

Typical of Helen: That Elvis Presley smile — "Yeah" — 
"I'm frustrated." - "Shut up (Donald Duck talk) - THE 
idol — "Hey you guys, it's about that time." — the sympathe- 
tic listener — that all revealing gymsuit — "Hey Little One, 
what walk today?" — right grip 82 — chinning on the shower 
rail — Abby pulley system — "Te quiero" — "It's our kind 
of movie" — "All's we gotta do is ....

"Hey you guys ... — What am I going to wear?" 

Corridor Proctor 3, Griffin Cheerleader 3, 4, Secretary of 
A.C.A. 4. 

Unique in her ability to worry forty-eight hours a day, 
Maidy lives in the library. When struck with the urge to pull 
herself away from her beloved retreat, her first destination 
is the mirror. — "What am I going to do with my hair? 
It looks just awful!" Always asking advice, she listens very 
sweetly looking up out of her big, brown, innocent eyes, 
and then she proceeds to do precisely what she wants. 
When a person remarks on the twenty-two inch waist, her 
first reaction is, "But my hips ..." The major portion 
of her vocabulary consists of the words "Peter" ( pronounced 
Peta) and "Poor Mashmi," a reference to the mammoth 
white bear that sits on her bed. Maidy's greatest talents 
are her magnificent Wednesday morning chapel talks and 
her unequalled ability to enter inevitably into the middle 
of a conversation.

"Well, actually ..." 

Librarian of Fidelio 4, Choir 4. 

Passport for Miss Charlotte Nancy Witts. 

Height: 5'6". 

Weight: Medium. 

Eyes: greeny gray-blue ("depending somewhat on my tem- 
perament" ) . 

Hair: Dark. 

Nationality: English ("Not British!" ) ? 

Occupation: Visitor to "the colonies." 

Peculiarities: Eyebrow which raises with alacrity (some- 
times dangerous!); partiality for trans— Atlantic boats; 
excitement at "magic doors that open when you walk in 
front of them;" series of unfathomable remarks: "Cor 
what a mouldy swiz!" "It's fuggy in here." "Ooh I say, 
how posh!" "Well quite!"

Silhouette: a slim wrinkled nymph — green tights, scarf, 
peaked plaid hat, the inevitable, best-beloved green jumper, 
straggly brown tresses raining down . . . tea and butter 
cookies (plebeian tastes!) . . . gaie danseuse: elfin in early 
morning starlight, fluid in spiral drifts of Strauss, frolicking 
in a frothy polka . . . "She's over at Homestead" — where 
else prithee?! . . . conjuring pale pipers on black paper 
with stolen pastels; penning poetic fragments: wisps of 
whimsey and of melancholy, romance, protest, joie de vivre 
. . . "The Biology word list waits the queen's pleasure" . . . 
footprints on the snowy Circle, footsteps in the streets of 
Cambridge . . . harpstrings — "Toujours la musique!"

Class Play 1, 2, New Fidelio 2, Courant Board 3, 4, Fidelio 
3, 4, Choir 3, 4, Honor Roll 3, Vice President of A.C.A. 4. 

Nothing escapes her except herself (meaning that she 
has a terrific amount to give ) . She is a minor explosive type, 
a reactant mettle. You'd know her anywhere because of her 
under-the-breath humming of ancient Corinthian tunes, her 
spurting laughter, and tell-tale fingers. She tells twice as 
much with her fingers as with her face. She stirs things up. 
She is also known for her delight at discovering a good 
book, for her naturkal fly-by-night room, for her passion for 
shortbread and tea, for her little black scribble book, and 
for the parting phrase, "Sweet dreams." 

And I heard the leprechaun laugh.
